In George Orwell's Animal Farm, after the revolution much changed on the farm for the animals in the short run. They were now free of human dominance and abuse. They began making decisions for themselves and enjoying the fruits of their own labor.

However, Napoleon’s hunger for power eventually changed all that. Under his dictatorial leadership, the animals began to suffer as much as they had under Farmer Jones. When Napoleon changed the name back to Manor Farm he was signifying that the farm was now functioning not as a revolutionary entity, looking to improve the lives of all animals everywhere, but as a business like other farms in which animals were meant to profited from.
